“What America needs today are parents who don’t just say they value these virtues but who live them and passionately and boldly teach them to their children. It’s up to me and you and every parent in America to make the necessary changes to give our children the opportunity to change the world. We do that by instilling good character traits in them so that they will be capable of being the adults our world needs.”
It is not easy to be a parent today. Things are so different from when you probably grew up. Everything is so fast paced. People want instant gratification and our children are no different. They have not really had to learn many of the lessons we have as children such as waiting for an answer. Today all you have to do is have some form of technology and you literally have the world at your fingertips.
I just want time and things to slow down like they were for me many years ago. I want things to be somewhat simplistic. That is why I am happy to tell you about this great parenting resource by Korie Robertson. It is a wonderful christian based book on raising your children while instilling character traits. In a day and age when we want to keep up with the Jones, and we want to post to the world a picture perfect family, this book brings home the principle that we all make mistakes. Modeling good behavior, teaching character traits, and trusting our mighty Savior with our children is what we must do to ensure that our babies will be ready to succeed in this world!

In her new book STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed, Korie Robertson – New York Times bestselling author, wife of Duck Commander® CEO Willie Robertson, star of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, and mother of five – argues that developing good character in our children is the single most important thing we can do to help ensure they lead happy, healthy adult lives. Robertson explores key traits and what they truly look like in action, asks readers to select the two traits that they hope to see most in their children, and shares hands-on ways for nurturing strength of character. Written with her mother Chrys Howard and featuring stories and wisdom from husband Willie, STRONG and KIND cuts through the contemporary cacophony of parenting manuals to rediscover, unfold, and embrace the enduring wisdom that has guided the best parents for centuries.
